9 reasons to start a career in security


Our Security and Loss Prevention course enables you to learn what it takes to get a job in the security sector. If you are currently looking for a new prospect in your career, this is an opportunity you should definitely consider. Here’s why.


Kick-start a career in a growing market

Security is high on the UK agenda and now there is no major public or private organisation without a team dedicated to managing security issues. The market is strong, and rapidly expanding. At the moment, around 143,800 people are employed in the investigation and security-related industry in the UK and 26,500 in London alone.


A variety of positions in security

Security offers a variety of positions such as CCTV operative, door supervisor or security officer. And the in-house security team within a business is just one part of the industry. There’s also other interesting options, from business-to-business security solutions to crime awareness advice, monitoring behavior on the streets or protecting buildings.


Your attitude is everything

Lack of academic qualifications has never been a barrier to entry this industry. Skills, attributes and attitudes are the primary criteria. Employers are looking for applicants with determination and enthusiasm and of course, the necessary SIA license which you will get for free in our course.


There is room for diverse people

The sector is truly diverse in its employment practices. People from all ages, European and Non-EU applicants are equally welcome. The sector is also increasingly being well represented by women in all levels.


You will be doing good

Security and loss prevention is a service that seeks for a safer community. In this kind of job, you will be able to help others in any inconvenience that might come up. Your responsibility is to guarantee safety and people will come to you for help and advice. They will also look up to you.


Get skills for future possibilities

During our course and during your work experience, you will gain a variety of skills which will help you not only to find a job in the security sector but also to utilise these skills for many other future possibilities. You will learn customer service and loss prevention skills for retail, how to effectively lead and encourage a team, and also gain knowledge in personal development and employability.


Become a leader

Working as a security officer demands an attitude. This is a great opportunity for your professional development: be a leader, act as a counsellor, trainer and advisor.


Attend awesome events

There is lots of opportunities to work in music festivals or sports events. Even though you will not always be able to join the party, it is always nice to be part of a festive community event.
